Produktbeschreibung
Successive UK governments have given an ever-higher profile to the quality of parenting, and to the importance of supporting and educating parents. However, disabled parents have often been absent from these mainstream debates. This book will begin and inform this debate and challenge the policymakers' oversight in this area. The 1990s saw important changes in the policy and practice of providing welfare to disabled people, and disabled people themselves have demanded that assistance and support be controlled by them, rather than provided by welfare bureaucracies. The ways in which this support is provided for disabled people in parenting roles has remained unexplored - until now. This book reports on the first substantial UK study of parenting, disability and mental health. It examines the views of parents and children and covers a broad spectrum of issues facing disabled parents and their families.
